Call for Speakers

The call for speakers has closed. We've been lucky enough to get a lot of great speaker applications. Thank you, everyone for applying to speak at WordCamp Kochi. We shall get back to you about your speaker requests, shortly. Stay tuned!

Namaskaaram*, dear WordPress-enthusiast!

We invite you to speak to the beautiful and energetic audience at our very the first edition of WordPress Kochi.

If you had the idea, that speaking at WordCamps is only for those experts, who conjure fantastic topics out of thin air and deliver voracious speeches; then, you are clearly mistaken. Whether you are a novice WordPress user, or an expert developer, whether you have a mind-blowing topic with breathtaking slides, or whether you would just like to voice your thoughts, it matters the least here.

All we want is for you to speak about your own experiences, thoughts, and stories about WordPress. So, if this is your first time speaking to an audience, or if you are a seasoned WordPress expert, having spoken at multiple WordCamps, we welcome you, our attendees – comprising of a vibrant WordPress community, would love to hear you speak!

Do remember – WordCamps are for everyone. 

We do have a few minor guidelines – nothing big, though:

  1. Your topic should be directly related to WordPress, or related areas. That doesn’t mean that you should be speaking about WordPress, alone. Anything that is relevant for the audience (like Blogging, Open Source Philosophy, Writing, Marketing, among others). (Confused?  Contact Us, or take the plunge right away, and submit your proposal right here! We’ll get back to you)
  2. Plan your talk so that it is about 20 – 30 minutes long. You may even do a lightning talk that is about 10 minutes long.
  3. Please take cognisance of our Code of Conduct, and be respectful towards the WordPress Community, and the GPL.

Please feel free to hit us up, if you have any further questions. You can even propose multiple topics, if you choose to. Please submit the form multiple times, once for each topic.

So, why wait? Take a deep breath, fill in the form below, and shoot us your proposal with all the required details!

The call for speakers is closed. We’ve been overwhelmed by the number of speaker applications we have received! Thank you so much for the fantastic response! We shall get back to each one of you, regarding your speaker applications, very soon. Stay tuned!
